All of our Drosera petiolaris complex are seed grown.
From here on out, our Petiolaris Complex program will be more focused on producing pure and hybrid seeds. Because of this, we will need to keep as many pure species as possible to ensure greater success. Our goal is to grow and provide these wonderful plants in a more sustainable way by focusing on producing seeds rather than just selling live plants. We will be selling live plants still, the only difference is our stock will not constantly be available much like it was before. This change will also ensure that all plants sold will be of a mature size. Check any plant you are interested in, and if it is not in stock, then select the option to be made available for when it is back in stock. Eventually, every plant will be restocked with an overabundance in a particular species or with established divisions.
We will still be selling LIVE Drosera petiolaris complex through two of our subscription plans. The DIAMOND and BLUE DIAMOND plan. The prices of these plans will not raise for the foreseeable future and is the best way to get not only a live Drosera petiolaris complex plant at a great price but will soon be the only way to obtain seeds as they could possibly become even rarer pretty soon. We will not cancel your subscription no matter how rare the seeds become. Click here to check out our subscription plans.
